TNA Impact Wrestling on February 9 scored a 1.05 rating

---TNA Impact Wrestling on February 9 scored a 1.05 rating, down from a 1.16 rating last week, for the lowest rating of the year. It's the lowest rating since the December 22 Christmas Week episode.

Impact averaged 1.50 million viewers, down 100,000 viewers (6.9 percent) compared to last week's average of 1.61 million viewers.

Despite the overall viewership drop, Impact increased one-tenth of a ratings point among males 18-49 and males 18-34 compared to last week's show. 

Check back later tonight for more demographic ratings and quarter-hour ratings...
Analysis: Even in front of two hot crowds in London, the product apparently did not click with home viewers, as last week's rating was merely average. Failing to promote in-advance also seemed to bite TNA this week, as Sting's in-ring return in front of an appreciative crowd could have done more to bolster TNA's audience. The result of these two tapings points to another conclusion - simply moving Impact out of the Impact Zone does not solve TNA's Creative issues. TNA is improving, but they're not there yet, and the latest dangling carrot of going on the road more often for TV tapings is not the ultimate problem-solver.
